This puts a dent in UNC's running back depth though not necessarily this season. With Elijah Hood and T.J. Logan available, the running game should be fine in 2016. The 2017 season could be a different story. If Williams were staying, he could step into a big role next year. As it stands, Larry Fedora may need to adjust to bring in more RBs in the 2016 class than he originally anticipated.
